A more complex example: Facebook

So let's look at Facebook. At ¼ of the page views in the US, you pretty much have to be able to handle Facebook if you want to claim you have a system that can do web security. While you might have to whitelist facebook itself, the elements of it will show up on other sites because that's what people expect.

 

And some of those are high-risk elements: user-generated content, advertiers, apps, and people who sometimes don't realise the risks they're taking. And of course, it's a fairly complex layout which could be an issue for a visual solution.

 

Note: This is part of my presentation on Visual Security Policy for the Web.
